The 2023 UConn Spring Puppet Slam will showcase the work of Nate Puppets, a Cleveland-based artist and puppeteer who will perform Petey the Puppet’s Tribute to Bimbo the Clown, featuring Petey the Puppet, the enchanted stringless marionette, who pays homage to the famous Bimbo the Clown arcade game in an interpretive dance to honor the clown who spent decades behind glass entertaining countless thousands. Nate Puppets will also perform The Over at the Frankenstein Pitch!, in which Skuzzle the Sugar Beast wants to push his creative desires in what he would want in his own paper doll production of The Rocky Horror Show! The UConn Spring Puppet Slam will also feature new works by UConn graduate and undergraduate students from the university’s Puppet Arts Program. These performances are recommended for mature audiences. Funding for the UConn Spring Puppet Slam is made possible in part by the Puppet Slam Network.
